Spring is here!

Finally.

Granted I live in the south so we don’t have the snow and ice and subzero temperatures but it was really cold this winter.  But the last two days have been up in the 80’s and it has been fabulous.

To take advantage of the beautiful weather MrBunny and I decided to start my garden.

After the constant battle with vines and roots trying to work their way into my garden last year (the ivy and crap like it is out of control around here) we decided to go ahead and build a raised bed.

After much discussion in the Home Depot aisle this is what we ended up with.  I’m pretty pleased with it.

I spent a good amount of time actually researching this year so no repeat of last year’s raspberries next to tomatoes misstep.

I’ve got basil, broccoli, bell peppers, zucchini, cucumbers, radishes, white radishes, and lettuce.

Then with a gift card my parents got me for Christmas I got some “potato bags” which are basically soft sided planters that I can plant seed potatoes in and hopefully get a couple pounds out of.

I haven’t done it yet but last years garden plot is not going to go unused.  I decided to use it for mint and strawberries.  That way they can run rampant (which they will) and it’s not that big of a deal.

I can’t wait!

Had the camera out so I decided to torture the dogs some.

Bronco- I love how the focus is on his nose.

And speaking of the strawberries-

Awww, so pretty.

Here’s hoping the bounty is plentiful!

  1. I really want to do raised beds, but they would probably take up half the yard and then Maggie would have no where to do her business. Damn small lots.

    Your’s look great! Can’t wait to hear how everything turns out!
